Defence sector to spend Rs 20,000 cr on fibreglass products: Chander

Tejas LCAThe Indian defence sector is expected to spend Rs 20,000 crore in a decade on products made out of fibreglass for use in the latest weaponry systems, said the top official of country’s premier defence research organisation.

“The fibreglass (composite) content in the defence industry will alone be Rs 20,000 crore from the total Rs 200,000 crore worth spending in the development of indigenous defence systems in the next 10 years,” said Avinash Chander, chief of Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO), today.

In his inaugural address at the international conference on reinforced plastics here, Chander said the DRDO was working on raising the utilisation of fibreglass material components in the next version of light combat aircraft (LCA) Tejas equipped with Mark-II engine, from the “present 65 per cent to up to 80 per cent”.
